Since opening in 2000 as a restaurant and lounge, this enterprise of Roxy owner Eugene DiNino has transformed into a strictly late-night DJ club, catering to house, hip-hop and Dom Perignon fans. A largely African-American crowd—men in oversized polos and women wearing either stilettos or dancing shoes—arrives by midnight, lounging in creamy golden banquettes, congregating around the central bar, and occasionally stepping onto the dance floor. In the VIP section, which is adorned with chandeliers and quilted green walls, guys claim their corners for the night with their feet up on the burgundy velvet ottomans. A simple mixed drink goes for $10 in a plastic cup stacked with ice, which somehow packs a good amount of liquor, and the vivacious crowd is clearly socially lubed.Dress Code
It's common for the doormen to search bags and pat down guests at the entrance. Smart partygoers travel light and get themselves on the list to avoid a cover charge.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
